cannot go in effect for the general election. there is a chance the state could appeal this to the state's supreme court, but based on what the supreme court said last time they looked at this, it's doubtful they would succeed there. what the judge says here is yes, it's true. the state has said we can fix some of the problems that have come up before, but he says, i question whether there is enough time now to fix these problems. i think there are going to be more problems down the road putting this into effect like we've already seen, he says. he believes that the gap between the photo i.d.'s issued and the estimated need cannot be closed before the election. in other words, he says all the people who would have to get new photo i.d.s, he doubts there is enough time for them to get them. he says i'm not convinced in my predictive judgment there won't be any voter disenfranchisement arising out of this new law. pennsylvania in march passed this new law requiring voter i.d.s. people started going to get them and the state said, wait a minute. we can't just give you a voter i.d. because o

does not define an election. >> we have been talking about how there are two more days besides this one debate, does tomorrow heighten the importance of what we see? >> i don't know. there's so many unexpecteds between now and then. we'll have the jobs number and the international crisis. we'll see iran perhaps -- >> what's going on in syria today. >> there are so many things and the election is a lifetime away. so, you know, we don't -- we have no idea the other factor that is are going to shape this election. >> you think mitt romney won a round in what is still a pretty long fight. we have 33 days? >> i think he's ahead. >> that's $500 million worth of negative advertising coming down the road in terms of funding. at the end of the day, that can be as important as what we saw last night. >> speaking of money, since i have you here, congressman, a big article in "the wall street journal" today. democratic backers steered congressional races. their analysis shows unions have outspend gop super packs 2 to 1, is that right? and what does that mean for taking control of congress? >> in 20

of grand bargain we're going to need to come to after the election. as carl said, whoever is president will have to lay out a long, hard slog ahead and we need math that works. that means probably raising taxes or at least cutting some loopholes and making the tax code simpler, raising revenue, making some investments but maybe curbing entitlements. >> i want to bring in ralph nader, three-time presidential candidate and author of the new book called "the 17 solutions." always good to have you on the program. thanks for being here. mitt romney is painting himself as a defender of the middle class. he says he won't raise taxes on the middle class, won't cut education. has a plan to cover people with pre-existing conditions. is this the real mitt romney? give us your take on this economic debate. >> it's clearly the new fake romney on the debate and president obama couldn't adjust in time. he said what's this? and i think it's the old romney that counts. i think the 47% really reflected his plutocratic personality, and he still has tattend to his bas, which is the primary base. that's wh

the election. >> undecided but that doesn't mean totally out of it. i mean, these aren't, like, dumb voters. you can sort of get the impression they're not interested. they don't follow what's going on in the world. but that's not it, right? >> we need to separate two things. you can be uninterested -- and this is a kind of a condescension political folks have sometimes. you can be uninterested without being dumb. i am deeply uninterested in baseball. i just don't follow that. doesn't mean that i couldn't be able to comprehend baseball. that's how undecided voters are. it's hard to make them move all at once. when we think about what debates could do for undecided voters, these are people not likely to watch debates. these are people not likely to be tuning in to coverage of gaffes. if you're going to a campaign event so large that's going to move a large group of voters, you're probably going to see it move decided voters who have made up their minds but could still change them. before it ever gets to undecided voters. it would have to be huge to get to undecided voters. and it's only goin

, the former. look, american presidential elections are usually decided on which candidate the public at large feels has the best vision of the future. our presidential elections are generally speaking, not about the past, but about the future. that's number one. so, in case of the narrative. number two, that we know that in politics as in so much else in life, after these debates are over, there will be a lot of people who can tell you specifically what any candidate said, but they will know how that candidate made them feel. so, the object and target for both candidates in the debates is for people to walk away feeling the person who handled it best. certainly people they want specifics, so governor romney, he needs to tell how with some detail his administration will be different from not just the obama administration, but from the president bush. with president obama, his challenge is to spell out to people. tell them how things are going to be different. in his second term than they were in his first term without acknowledging that the first term was necessarily bad, but people don't want
